Democratic Republic of Congo - Growth with Governance in the Mineral Sector Project (Inglês)

Ratings for the Growth with Governance in the Mineral Sector Project for Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) were as follows: outcome was moderately satisfactory, Bank performance was satisfactory, and monitoring and evaluation (M and E) quality was modest. Some lessons learned included: sector reforms often emphasize legal changes, whereas longer term institutional reforms matter often as much and are sometimes more challenging. In the DRC, revisions of the mining code have been highly political and somehow popular because of the perception that it determines the level of benefits that mining will bring to the country. The partnership with United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) proved very successful to put the project back on track, especially regarding efficiency. Technical assistance lending projects in such complex countries and sectors require intense supervision and long‐term engagement. Dedicated quality control for highly technical activities is critical. The political economy of the mining sector should be properly considered in understanding and promoting sector reforms. The challenges relating to artisanal mining are diverse and overwhelming. Support to artisanal and small‐scale mining (ASM) in fragile areas requires strong on the ground presence and systematic supervision. Access to geological information should be addressed early on in geological programs. Ensuring inclusion of women in project activities can create a new momentum for better livelihoods in mining areas. The experience with United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID) also illustrates that different methodological approaches, towards M and E typically, can lead to overly complex design.
